Alexey Miller of Gazprom and Dusan Bajatovic, Director General of state-owned Srbijagas, met in Belgrade on Thursday where they discussed the issue of current and winter gas supplies to Serbia.
“The meeting participants discussed the progress with the South Stream project. The pipeline route is being designed in Serbia within the project,” Gazprom said in a statement.
In the near future the construction permit will be obtained for the South Stream’s top-priority section in Serbia.
In 2013 a long-term contract was signed for Russian gas supplies to Serbia in the amount of up to 1.5 billion cubic meters of gas annually for a period of 10 years. Gas is being conveyed via the existing route and in the future – via the South Stream gas pipeline.
